The warm weather is finally here, so it’s time to experience the great outdoors! Borrow a MAPsack from the Library!
MAPsacks (Movement And Play) help families to get outside, explore and move! A MAPsack is a backpack containing stories, nature guides, activity sheets, a logbook. You can also borrow a free family pass to take the MAPsack to the Rideau Valley Conservation Areas OR Ontario Parks. MAPsacks are an initiative of the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Healthy Community Partnership.
Currently the library has MAPsacks about “Honkers & Quackers”, “The Forest Floor” and “Owls”.
